About the edition

We have released a very special selection of previously sold out editions from the House of Voltaire archive. With exclusive works from a number of international artists, this is the very final time that these editions will be available to purchase. Studio Voltaire is a registered arts and education charity with all sales directly supporting our exhibition, learning and studio programmes.

About the artist

Celia Hempton’s art explores concepts of voyeurism in the post-digital age. In her paintings, performances and installations, the artist investigates the blurred lines of comfort and consent; desire and subjugation, visibility and opacity, seeking to deconstruct the ways in which we engage with each other in an evolving hyper-mediated age. Formally, Hempton’s paintings, which range in size from intimate to the life-size acknowledge the tropes of ‘history painting’ and the often subjugated female body. Hempton's richly layered paintings directly play and confront this historical dynamism, producing tactile celebrations of the body, as well as multiple perspectives on how the bodily gaze is constructed. 


House of Voltaire commissions and sells unique artworks, limited edition prints and specially–commissioned homewares, objects, clothing and accessories by world–renowned contemporary artists and designers.
